Environment Canada has issued a special weather alert for the area

A wind warning is in effect for Langley, according to a special weather statement issued by Environment Canada

“Strong northeasterly outflow winds with gusts up to 90 km/h have also developed over the western and central Fraser Valley as well as the southeast sections of Metro Vancouver including Surrey and Langley,” according to the statement.

The strong outflow winds are expected to ease tonight.

“Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur,” Environment Canada warns. “Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.”

Environment Canada is asking people to be prepared for cooler temperatures this week across coastal areas in the province.

Arctic air will reach the coast by this evening. Temperatures will dip below the freezing mark for most coastal communities. Blustery outflow winds with the arctic air will result in cold wind chill values.

People working and spending time outside are reminded to dress warm and travellers are asked to add winter emergency kits to their vehicles, including a blanket and extra clothes.
